The 7th and 8th graders, with their teachers Gayle Hampton, Megan Flynn, and Franck Le Martelot, meet a new professional who speak about his/her job and career during school hours every two weeks.

This topic of World of Work 4th Edition is “Identity & Values”: What is the purpose of work? Are we what we do? Who decides the “real value” of a job? Do most people “work for a living” or “live to work”?…

The 7th and 8th-grade students met French author Marc Levy as part of the World of Work project.

With 50 million copies of his novels sold and translated into more than 40 languages, Marc Levy is the most widely read contemporary French writer in the world.

He discussed the immediate international success of his first novel Et si c’était vrai… -Just Like Heaven-, the rights of which have been purchased by Steven Spielberg for a film version of the novel.

He also answered in a very sincere way to the questions prepared by the students: what is your main source of inspiration? What are the cliches about the writer’s identity? Which values guide your work every day?…

The message given by Marc Levy to our students is clear: follow your dreams and express yourself!
